Upon your arrival at Breivikeidet base, you will meet your guide receiving useful advice and tips about controlling the dog sled and you will be given warm clothing and winter boots to wear.

Now you are ready for your 2-hour experience on the frozen landscape. Jump aboard the sled and yell to make the dogs move.
